Stop Roque! The Refrigerator Is Closed

Whether it's day or night, I have a crazy habit of doing this on a daily basis. I don't know if it's because I'm developing an unnoticeable habit of forgetting some of the small things in less than five seconds, or is it something else. Either way, this is slightly freaking me out.

When I close the refrigerator after putting something in or taking something out, I would go to my bedroom, feeling confident that I've done everything I needed to do in the kitchen. I sit down in the living room or the bedroom, ready to let my body rest a little. 

Then all of a sudden, my mind begins to tell me "I think you left refrigerator opened. You might want to go back there and check." I am fighting these feelings simultaneously. A part of me does believe that I did close the refrigerator door. Eventually, I would give into my thoughts and head towards the kitchen. After checking it, I would realize that the refrigerator is in fact closed, and that my mind just made me feel dumb in the inside at that moment.

After opening and closing the refrigerator door just to make sure, I would go back to my room and try to forget about the whole thing. Then the thoughts come back. Even though the refrigerator is closed, my mind is telling me to go back there over and over again. And guess what? I would go back and check the refrigerator over and over again.

I can't explain why this happens to me on a daily basis. Am I only one that has these thoughts?

That is obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD). It's associated with anxiety, you should see your doctor for treatment.
